Caring for Aging Pets in Citrus Heights
For our patients that are over 7 years of age, we recommend a regular senior wellness exam and diagnostic workup. We check a complete blood count, biochemistry panel, thyroid levels, urinalysis and radiographs or ultrasound of the chest or abdomen, if needed. We can also measure blood pressures and EKGs in our older cardiac patients, if necessary. A retinal exam is often recommended in older cats.
Our pets are living longer, and it is our goal to try to prevent problems or diagnose and treat them in their earliest stages. We value your pet’s quantity and quality of life.
